There is a train service that connects Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia to Thailand. The main route is controlled by KTM Berhad, a Malaysian rail travel company which runs regular routes from Kuala Lumpur to Hat Yai in Thailand, taking approximately 15 hours each way for both the outgoing and return legs of the journey. This popular route runs through the Malaysian countryside and into the Southern Gulf Coast of Thailand, continuing on towards Bangkok in China before it terminates and departs back to the beginning of the route.

From Hat Yai, where the KTM Berhad trains take their passengers, it is fairly straightforward to go on and access many other areas of Thailand via luxurious bus services or taxis, with the latter being considerably more expensive for long-distance journeys. Frequent services run from Hat Yai to all other major towns and cities in the South, with additional buses being used to transport people to other parts of the country, including Ko Phi Phi and Phuket.

It's also possible to hire a vehicle in Hat Yai to use during your holiday for unrestricted travel all over Thailand. Users of this type of service pay a flat rental charge and are required to meet additional fees for fuel consumption during their trip. There are many car rental services operating in the city of Hat Yai - which is the fifth largest in Thailand - so it's advisable to scour the market for the provider offering the greatest value for money and a vehicle of suitable size.

Taking the train is the safe, comfortable, cheap & traditional way to travel between Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Penang & Bangkok.  It's environmentally-friendly, too, compared to unnecessary short haul flights.  Singapore-Kuala Lumpur takes 6 hours by modern daytime train or 8 hours on a time-effective overnight sleeper train, from just $10 or £7 one-way.  Singapore to Bangkok is a wonderful 1,249 mile overland journey, taking about 48 hours including an afternoon free in KL and a morning in Penang, departures are daily, and it costs a bargain £33 ($50) one-way including comfortable sleeping-berths with fresh clean sheets.  You change trains at Kuala Lumpur & Butterworth (Penang), and of course you can stop off to see Kuala Lumpur or Penang as long as you like, or catch the ferry to Ko Samui or the bus to Phuket or Krabi.
